Here's a little expansion on the debate

Do a you tube search and key in "Top Secret Water|

this will begin one level of understanding. One subject i have researched
is sewage which has taken me to many corners including visiting with and
inspecting the work of Marioara Godeanu of Romania., 4 times...further
dimensions were understood. I have also been very fortunate to grow up in
New Zealand with a strong connection to the indigenous people the Maori who
recognise water as a cornerstone to their culture and suggest there is at
least 57 different forms of water. They say it has memory, and spirit much
like what Victor Schauberger taught us. Soil likewise has as many
dimensions if not more then if we combine the astral and etheric and figure
out what Steiner taught us we begin to get a picture of how we best manage
both for our benefit. Glen Atkinson taught us that ( www.bdmax.co.nz)...it
gets deep er and deeper but its not really top secret ...its working with
nature not against it...but one of our principles
